Has anyone noticed that this article is absolutely ridiculous?

"Love before 1980" is just a bizarre heading title, it makes you think that somehow in 1980, love changed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 13:06, 6 August 2009.

I agree that the article needs attention. However, love is an important theme in the series, so this article's existence is justified. I believe the intent of having heading titles like "Love before 1980" and "Love in Harry Potter's lifetime" was to give some organization to the "History" section. But, as you pointed out, those headings don't read well, so I've switch to simple decades instead. Starstuff (Owl me!) 09:26, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

The quote at History#1990s isn't cannon. Shouldn't it be removed?--Thorning 16:06, December 6, 2009 (UTC)


Is it actually stated somewhere that it was "love" that pushed Dumbledore to turn against Grindewald in 1945? I think it would make more sense that it was something more a long the lines of duty or revenge. If he had been doing it out of love for his family, I would have thought that he would have taken Grindewald down when he first started rising to power, instead Dumbledore waited until he felt it was absolutely necessary to confront Grindewald, like that it was Dumbledore's love for Grindewald that kept Dumbledore from confronting him sooner. --BachLynn23 19:13, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Main image

I would like to suggest changing the main image in the infobox to this. I believe it to be a much better descriptor of the power of love. —C Teng 01:38, June 27, 2012 (UTC)


Is spell infobox really the best infobox for this emotion? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:26, January 6, 2013 (UTC)

Probably not, as it's really more a sort of magical property rather than a spell that is cast, not withstanding Muggle talk of "You cast a spell on me." What type of infobox would you recommend as an alternative? ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:58, January 6, 2013 (UTC)
This probably isn't the smartest idea, but I was thinking of creating a separate infobox, something like "Mentality infobox"; it'd work for Love and Insanity, at the very least. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 02:13, January 6, 2013 (UTC)
If you can think of a good way to do it, then go for it. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:15, January 23, 2013 (UTC)
